This is a commendable performance given the fact it is fifty percent taken up,” says Ismail Gafoor, CEO of PropNex. “The price point of Lentor Hills Residences — which is in line with that of Lentor Modern — presented buyers with a value proposition.”
Gafoor states that Lentor Hills Residences benefited from the spill-over in demand from the launch of Lentor Modern last year. “Those who missed out on the smaller units at Lentor Modern had the opportunity to purchase the one- and two-bedroom units at Lentor Hills Residences,” he adds.
over ninety-four percent were taken up over the weekend out of the 35 one-bedroom unit, according to property agents. And close to 70% of the 39 one-bedroom-plus-study units of 570 to 638 sq ft were snapped up.
The two-bedroom (108 units) and two-bedroom-plus-study (111 units) take-up was 73% and 65.8%, respectively. Two-bedroom units range in size from 678 to 721 sq ft, and two-bedroom-plus-study are from 743 to 775 sq ft.

Of the 101 units of three-bedroom-plus-yard (1,098 to 1,130 sq ft), close to 27% were spoken for. About 14% of 100 four-bedroom apartments (1,349 to 1,399 sq ft) were taken up, and about 38% of the 16 dual-key units of 1,302 to 1,399 sq ft were purchased.
“The larger units were sold predominantly to those looking to move from older developments in the vicinity,” says Mark Yip, CEO of Huttons Asia. He adds that the dual-key units were popular among multi-generational families and investors as they are seldom offered in recent project launches.
Lentor Hills Residences is sitting lovingly on a good plot land size of 184,461 sq ft, 99-year leasehold site in the upcoming Lentor Hills estate, a growth area positioned as a sustainable and pedestrian-friendly neighbourhood with new parks and seamless walking and cycling paths. Lentor Hills Residences are surrounded with parks and nature reserve and trails at Lower Peirce Reservoir, Bishan-Ang Mo Kio Park, Windsor Nature Park, and Thomson Nature Park.
Lentor MRT station is sheltered all the way from the side gate of Lentor Hills Residences and the condo is scheduled for completion in December 2K26. “The good response is due to our convenient location,” says Betsy Chng, head of sales and marketing at Hong Leong Holdings. “Our buyers enjoy the surrounding nature parks with nearby MRT, yet still stay close to their families who live in the neighbouring mature townships like Upper Thomson, Ang Mo Kio, Bishan and Yishun.”
According to Chng, the functional layouts of the units and the facilities offered were also a draw.
“The majority of unit types that found buyers in Lentor Modern and Lentor Hills Residences were priced within the $2.5 million price range,” says Marcus Chu, CEO of ERA Singapore. “That is the sweet spot for suburban home buyers.”
popular primary schools within 1 km to Lentor Hills residences such as CHIJ St Nicholas Girls’ School and Anderson Primary School was another pull factor for families with young children.
